Fish And Orzo Coconut Soup

Soft white fish, chunky bites of vegetables with a handful of orzo, bathing in calmly spiced coconut broth. This simple one-pot fish and orzo coconut soup is hearty and makes a meal on it’s own. A little bit of globetrotting happened while creating this soup.

Chicken and Orzo Light Soup

No matter how hard I try to think and dig my brain, there would not be any interesting memories about soup from my childhood! I don't think Mom ever made a soup from scratch. It was always the instant, packaged soup that was quickly whipped up to keep us warm during the monsoon season. And, we always loved those packaged soups. Irrespective of the season, a soup can be the most comforting meal to enjoy with some bread on the side.
